Tony Condon has been a member of the Mulcair Men’s Shed in Co Limerick since 2016. After he retired, Tony was looking for something to occupy his free time, when he saw an advertisement in his parish newsletter for the shed.

“At the time, they were looking for skilled tradesmen in carpentry, electronics and other things like that to teach courses,” says Tony. “I went along – not as a tradesperson – but to take part in a class. I thought it might be nice to learn something new.” Tony started going to the meetings regularly and also took part in a 10-week ‘Shed for Life’ course .
